About Tammy Wong Hulbert

Tammy Wong Hulbert is an artist, curator and academic based in Melbourne, Australia. Born in Sydney to Cantonese Chinese parents, her art practice has a particular interest in the complicated, multi-layered and often fragmented space between cultures. She is influenced by her families intergenerational migratory connection to Australia since 1900. Her recent works have often involved a socially engaged practice working with various urban communities, in particular addressing issues of migration, belonging and the role of art in encouraging an inclusive city. As a curator, she has worked with a wide range of Australian, Chinese and Asian contemporary artists in Sydney, Melbourne, Beijing, Shanghai and Suzhou in China. In her curatorial projects she is interested in bridging the gap between Australia and Asia through the creation of dialogue in relation to these regions. In 2008-11 she completed her PhD researching The City as a Curated Space at RMIT University, investigating how the urban condition has an impact on the way artists and urban communities are able to engage with these environments. Tammy has taught at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels in art history and arts and cultural management in Melbourne and Hong Kong. She is currently a Lecturer of Curating Contemporary Art, Masters of Arts (Arts Management), School of Art, RMIT University.
